Start creating your own music

Dive into the captivating world of FL Studio with my beginner-friendly lessons. The first time you open a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) like FL Studio, it can be quite overwhelming. There are so many different things to press, twist, and push, it can be hard to know where to start. My lessons are designed to demystify the art of creating music.

Whether you're a budding producer or someone curious about the intricacies of digital music, I will guide you step by step, giving you time to try each new thing out. From understanding the fundamentals of FL Studio to crafting your beats and melodies, beginner lessons are a gateway to unleashing your creative potential.

Lessons can be pre-planned, or can follow the path you want to take. If you have a certain learning style, we can discuss what works best for you before we arrange our first lesson. Even if you just want help with writing something, the time is yours to use how you wish.

Notes are provided after, to help you with retaining the new knowledge, and I provide support outside of lessons for questions you may have while practicing.

Lessons can be in-person, meaning you can use my full setup and avoid any equipment costs to yourself until you're sure you definitely want to invest in music production.

Online lessons are also available, and you still don't need to buy a copy of FL Studio yet. Image-Line offers a fully functional demo on their website, so you can download it and follow along during the lesson. The only limitation on the demo is that you can save your projects, but you can't re-open them until you have purchased the software.

You don't need to own the software!
